Ireland | World Premiere
(Company Philip Connaughton )
The truth is out there… or is it? In a spectacular new dance piece, that’s also an opera, Philip Connaughton sets out to uncover Extraterrestrial Events. From the team behind the award-winning Tardigrade, Connaughton is joined by four incredible dancers, composer Michael Gallen and world-renowned soprano Kim Sheehan.
This ambitious show is inspired by real UFO sighting reports made to GEIPAN, a unit of the French Space Agency investigating unidentified aerospace phenomena. One thing the events they record have in common: doubt. Did they really happen? Do we want to know?
Exploring denial, truth and fear of change, Extraterrestrial Events is a multisensory experience that is truly out of this world.
